    Ohh you want to put and LSX into a LT1 based car. Well, you need and LS1 K member. I believe someone makes a wiring harness (can't remember who). And you got to add a return line for fuel. It's not as easy as it sounds. Of course I'm sumarizing it a lot.

    well if cost is not an issue and all you need is a motor the lt1 is a pretty good platform to build from and so you could just fix it and buy a 98-02 if putting an ls1/lsx in it is the only choice buy a wrecked 98-02 so you can swap the k-member, fuel lines, and wiring over
